One of the first things we did on our mini-vacation for Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Valencia was eat paella. Although opinions vary as to where you can get the best paella in Spain, many people will tell you that it's in Valencia. I don't know if I'm the best person to judge that, but I will say the paella that we ate was pretty delicious! I had to forget about doing my South Beach diet for a couple of days, but I think it was worth it!
Another typical treat in Valencia is horchata, which is made from chufa nuts. It's sort of like a sweet milk; Jordi is a big fan! You're supposed to dunk the Fartons (pastries in the picture), in the horchata to complete the treat.
